Applies To: Dynamics 365 (online), Dynamics 365 (on-premises), Dynamics CRM 2013, Dynamics CRM 2015, Dynamics CRM Online, Dynamics CRM 2016

You can create and design dashboards to show the information that you want exactly how you want to see it. While designing the dashboard, you can rearrange or remove the components that you have already added and change the height and width of a component.

By default, you can add only six components to any dashboard layout. This limit is configurable. For more information, contact your system administrator.

  1. Go to your work area. (How do I get there?)

  2. Do one of the following:

    • In the web app: Click Dashboards.

    • In Dynamics 365 for Outlook: Click My Work > Dashboards.

  3. Click New.

  4. As you’re creating your dashboard, to undo the last action, click or tap Undo. To repeat an action, click Redo.

  5. To rearrange the components, click the component header and drag it to an empty area on the dashboard or to the area of an existing component. When you drag a component over other components, a red line appears on top of the components to show that if you drop the component here, the existing component will move down.

  6. To change the width of a component, select the component, click the More Commands icon More Commands button in Appointment Activity and click Increase Width or Decrease Width. The width increases or decreases by one column.

  7. To change the height of a component, click Increase Height or Decrease Height. The height increases or decreases by three rows.

  8. To remove a component, select it and click Remove. When you remove a component, any new components are added in the bottom area of the designer. You can rearrange the components at any time after you insert them.
